My favorite deal of the week!!

I realize it has been awhile since our last post. I have several drafts pending, but just haven't done the finishing touches on them. More on what's new in our lives (though not much) in another post.

I was blessed with several great deals this week, but this one is my favorite. George and I had went to Super Target last night to pick up some free tomatoes. Unfortunately, the coupons making them free were no longer available. But since we also needed an ice scraper, we started wandering through the store. I stopped to rummage through the clearance racks and came across this beautiful coat. I had been keeping an eye out for a coat that would look better than my solid black one, for the days when I wear brown, but to also lengthen the life of my current coat.

I tried the coat on, saw George's eyes light-up with approval, but then looked at the was still $42.00. While I realize it is a decent deal, knowing a few purchases we had made earlier in the day, I took off the coat and returned it on the rack.

Later in the evening we had done pizza and a movie with Ben and Julie (brother and sister-in-law) and I hopped on their computer to show Julie the coat. As I pulled it up I was surprised to see it on sale online for $24.99!! I printed the page and took it to the store to see if they would honor the price (so I could avoid shipping costs), but of course, Target never makes things easy and said no.

After a little deliberation I decided to order it online. As I went to the online check out I noticed the promo code field. I checked my usual site for promo codes for online stores and saved 1/2 of the shipping cost! All in all, I purchased the coat for less than $30.00!! By the time tax was paid in store I would have spent over $45.00. In my opinion, it is well worth it to save the $15 and have to wait an extra 5 days for delivery.

Go to Super Savings Saturday to see other's great deals.
